Oxford Clay fossils from gravel exposures

By September 4, 2017News

Three interesting finds found from a small Oxford Clay exposure by one of our members on a recent organised quarry visit. All three would appear to be from one of many different Jurassic Chrondrichthyes (cartilaginous fish) to be found in the once warm shallow seas around Peterborough.

These two are skull fragments and are likely to be from one of many species fish to be found.

And an anterior tooth probably from the Hybodont shark Asteracanthus ornatissimus.
